KCR & UBCO Marketing Survey

Kelowna Community Resources (KCR) is participating in a UBCO Management project. The students are assisting KCR with the development of a marketing and communications plan for the online database (Community Information Search). The students have asked for some assistance with their marketing research and have designed an online survey to collect the information. The survey is only 10 questions long and should not take more than a couple of minutes to complete.

If you have a moment, please complete the survey at: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/WDWMMQB

The students ask that all surveys be complete by March 1, 2015.

Thank you so much for your assistance with this project.
